Ever since Megan Thee Stallion released her “Tina Snow” mixtape in 2018, she has dominated the hip-hop and rap charts. The rapper became well-known in the years that followed because of songs like “Big Ole Freak,” “Savage” (renowned for its TikTok dance), “Body,” and “Hot Girl Summer.”
It’s not surprising that the Houston Hot Girl’s net worth has significantly increased given her string of successful singles, legendary partnerships with other well-known performers like Cardi B and Beyoncé, and other rich partnership arrangements.
Naturally, Megan makes the majority of her money from her music. Her first big break occurred at the Houston cipher, a freestyle rap session in 2016, where she was the only female rapper among more than a dozen local rappers. Her talent was made known to the industry after the SoundCloud verse, which lasted a minute, went viral. Megan released “Stalli (Freestyle),” a cover of XXXTentacion’s “Look at Me!,” a year later, in 2017, according to MTV. The “Stall” music video gathered up millions of views swiftly, just like her cipher verse.
By 2018, Megan had signed a record deal with Houston’s 1501 Certified Entertainment, and her EP “Tina Snow” had been made available. “Big Ole Freak,” Megan’s debut track to reach the Billboard Hot 100, was featured on the cassette. It premiered at No.99 and eventually peaked at No. 65, according to Parade. Megan released Fever after joining 300 Entertainment as its first female rapper. With the release of “Hot Girl Summer” a few months later, she worked with Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign to adapt her now-famous line into a hit song.
Then, in 2020, “Savage,” which was released as a single from Megan’s album Suga, went on to become a smash hit on TikTok and one of the most well-known dance challenges ever. As of right now, the song has been included in over 17.4 million videos. Megan and Beyoncé worked together on the song “Savage (Remix)” in April 2020, and it eventually peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. It had been on the chart for nine weeks prior, peaking at No. 2 before claiming the coveted No. 1 position on May 26, 2020.
With her sex-positive collaboration with Cardi B, “WAP,” Megan was able to reclaim her place on the Billboard Hot 100. The week after its release, it received 93 million streams in the US and peaked at No. 1 on the Hot 100 charts. Her subsequent album, “Good News,” which had songs like “Body,” was released in November. Her most recent studio album, “Something For Thee Hotties,” was released in 2021, and her most recent song, “Sweetest Pie,” a collaboration with Dua Lipa, was released on March 11, 2022.
Upwards of 28.6 million people listen to Megan each month on Spotify as of this writing. Her most popular songs have received hundreds of millions of streams, which has generated enormous revenue. In comparison, “WAP” received 998,989,430 streams while “Savage” received 350,608,358. At the 2021 Grammy Awards, she took home three prizes, including Best New Artist.
Although the COVID-19 pandemic has prevented Megan from going on tour in the past few years, she is currently planning more live shows for the rest of 2022. She will do a few shows on Dua Lipa’s “Future Nostalgia” tour before appearing at Coachella in April and a few other music festivals later in the year. She also revealed her virtual reality concert tour, “Enter Thee Hottieverse,” in February 2022. Prices for tickets vary by city but typically fall between $30 and $50.
Even though Megan hasn’t yet had the opportunity to embark on a worldwide tour, her website features a vast array of merchandise that her supporters can purchase. She offers t-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, and even an entire “Hot Dog” line for your pet.
Last but not least, Megan has collaborated with numerous well-known companies, such as Coach, Revlon, Calvin Klein, Cheetos (for which she even created a song, “Flamin’ Hottie”), Popeyes, and Fashion Nova. She signed a significant agreement with Netflix in December 2021 to develop and produce unique content. In a statement at the time, Megan said, “I’ve always had a passion for telling imaginative and interesting stories, so I’m pleased about this cooperation with Netflix.” The next phase in my entrepreneurial adventure is venturing into production, and I can’t wait to bring all of my ideas to reality and have my Hotties watch.
She has, however, worked with Netflix before, so this is not her first venture into the media. She appeared as Onyx in an episode of the NBC drama series Good Girls in 2020. She was a member of the judging panel for the reality competition program HBO Max’s Legendary in 2021. The most recent news regarding Megan was her signing on to star in the A24 musical comedy F**king Identical Twins on February 17, 2022.
It’s not surprising that Megan’s net worth is an estimated $8 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth, given her multi-hyphenate status and many sources of income. Megan also graduated from Texas Southern University throughout her spectacular ascent to prominence. Just refer to her as Megan Thee Millionaire.
Big Sean sued over the 2020 song ‘Go Crazy’
Megan Thee Stallion and Big Sean are being sued for copyright infringement almost two years after collaborating with 2 Chainz on the song “Go Crazy.” Additionally cited in the lawsuit are Universal Music Publishing, 1501 Certified Entertainment, and 300 Entertainment.
Dawn Payne (Go Hard Major) and Harrell James (H-Matic), according to court documents obtained by Complex, have filed a copyright infringement complaint against Megan and Sean, alleging the duo plagiarised their song “Krazy” from 2012. They contend that Megan’s “Go Crazy” includes a chorus that is “strikingly similar” to theirs, as well as the same time and musical progression.
On the song from Megan’s 2020 album Good News, 2 Chainz collaborated with the Detroit rapper but isn’t named in the lawsuit.
Detroit natives Go Hard Major and H-Matic released “Krazy” on the music website ReverbNation. Additionally, they claimed to have distributed CDs with the song on them and to have performed “Krazy” in numerous Detroit nightclubs—Big Sean’s home city.
The lawsuit claims that the defendants gained additional access to the copyrighted work through the selling of thousands of physical CDs that included the work on West Detroit’s streets and in the parking lots of hip-hop venues frequented by [Big Sean]. “Defendants each had a reasonable opportunity to hear Plaintiffs’ Copyrighted Work before the creation of the Infringing Work due to the striking similarity between the Infringing Work and the Copyrighted Work, the wide dissemination of the Copyrighted Work, and the access to the Copyrighted Work by [Big Sean].”
For copyright infringement, Go Hard Major and H-Matic are requesting undisclosed damages. They added that Megan and Sean received a cease-and-desist letter in March.
